608. Camp Running Deer

Summer camp sounds as fun for some, but Camp Running Deer in Kentucky the fun turned ugly when the camp manager managed to be alone with some of the boys. For his actions he got 45 years in prison.

However he could have been stopped long before as he was investigated in connection with the 1979 Wyler Military School scandal. Only the death of another employee at the military school saved him from a well-deserved stay in prison. Because of the decision to drop charges against him back then, more boys became victims of his actions.

It could not have been fun to be there as a summer camp guest if you ended up alone with the camp manager.
